LISP Debugging

The most important hint is to disable the XtraTools via renaming its folders under  "Program files" "and Appdata/Roaming/ARES Commander". Then you can debug the LISP file via the function (*settrace* variant). The parameter variant is the degree of details in the LISP trace in case of errors.

0 No trace
1 Display allocated memory
8 Display function that caused an error
16 Display in case of an error all expressions up to function that caused the error
32 Display any Lisp expression evaluated
32+64 Display any Lisp expression evaluated (each line of code) needs to be confirmed by pressing any key
32+128 Display any Lisp expression evaluated. Halts at the end of a line for a certain time specified by the argument seconds. The default value is 5 seconds.

Further information can be found in the LISP Reference manual. It is installed with the program and can be found under the Windows Program group of ARES Commander.
